I'm going to put Rory Kockott getting an absolute shoeing at the bottom of a ruck on my list to Santa. Geebag of a man. There will be calls to keep the team similar, but realistically our players who have just left quarantine are going to make up the bones of the squad with maybe one or two of the young lads staying put.

"Glasgow Warriors is a welcoming club"

How to undermine a good article and a fair and reasonable request in 6 untrue words.
Boooo...geroff! :p

*switches off the alarm on his trusty 'Aggrieved-o-Matic-5000'*

Glasgow was named 'Best UK City Break 2021' by the eh, world renowned Conde Nast Traveller (see https://peoplemakeglasgow.com/) and that sincere acclaim was worth every note in that brown envelope.

Following this week’s round of PCR testing, the club has returned a very small number of positive results.

As a precautionary measure, training has been postponed and our schedule adjusted to protect the health and wellbeing of our staff and players.

Training at Farleigh House will resume following the next round of PRC test results later this week.

PRL and EPCR have been advised and our game this weekend currently remains unaffected.

0 - 28 is a decent result vs La Rochelle tbf!

From training pics it looks like we have most, but not all of our frontliners back training. Would expect a team like:
Kilcoyne, Scannell, Knox, Beirne, Kleyn, O'Mahony, Hodnett, O'Donoghue, Murray, Healy, Earls, De Allende, Farrell, Conway, Daly. Then a bench of Wycherley, Barron, Ryan, Jenkins, O'Sullivan, Casey, Crowley/Scannell, Flannery/French.

Still a really strong side. Really excited to see Scott Penny come on at fullback

Well that's an interesting one. Speaks to our depth in some positions. Big day for Osborne. Be interesting to see how Porter gets on reverting to TH after losing weight.

Ulster should be gunning for 5 points here. Conor Carey on the bench for NH is a random one, remember him at Connacht.

Slightly surprised, but pleased, that Herring's starting. He's been in fantastic form this season, and was brilliant against Clermont, but he played all 80 minutes and he's a regular Ireland international, so I worried he might need to be rested. John Andrew is our only other fit hooker, and he had a good season last season, but he hasn't had a minute on the pitch so far this season.

Leinster vs Montpellier off now.

Edit: points awarded to Montpellier, real kick in the teeth. Wonder what caused the cancellation given both sides named a 23.

France have now barred all UK non essential travelling. Curious to see how that effects the games this weekend.

How come Leinster deemed loosers. They had 23 who I'd say would pick up a result.

But said it last week. Scarlets game set a precedent that will take away value from this tournament
